O.S. union contracts, with MOU

Long ago, i posted all the union contracts signed in 2007 on northcoastnews.com – but you know what happened to that site. The info posted below is for all four union contracts (but not the “Exempt Employees” group of managers and other non-union positions), with various Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) documents added since 2007, when Rich McEachin – briefly promoted to City Manager after a long, rocky stint as Police Chief – singed the five- and six-year contracts that have generated huge increases in salaries, rising in inverse proportion to the plummeting General Fund.

Thank you to the citizen who forwarded this information, received through a Public Records Request.

In most cases, the bundled documents below include the 2012 salaries, by category.

OS – Clerical Labor Agreement – AR-M620N_20120713_111512

OS – Police Dept. Labor Agreement – AR-M620N_20120713_113132

OS – Public Works Dept. Labor Agreement – AR-M620N_20120713_120008

OS – Fire Fighters Labor Agreememt – AR-M620N_20120713_104246

*Note: The above is the expired firefighters agreement. The 2013-14 agreement is here.

    Go to FilePro and under Documents and Agreements look at the Police Contract. Now, look at the MOU for 2010. Police Officer $5058.76 Look at the number. Now look at 2011 and look at the percent. Now look at the number- $5068.88 Do the math. Now look at 2012 and look at the percent. Now look at the number -$5205.74 Do the math. You will notice that it goes from a $10.12 a month increase in 2011 to $136.86 increase in 2012 when the 2011 increase over 2010 was .2% and the 2012 was supposed to be .27%. Something is wrong here. I wonder if people owe the city money because they were overpaid.
